	On the contrary, if you're doing data work it better be exact. We've
had problems in the past where we would do a 2k (2048x1556) scan for an fx shot
and had geometry calibration problems with a service bureau( to remain
nameless) we used to output back to film. A few pixels make a big difference
when you look at a projected image - ie. 2048/1832 is more than a 10% error or
3 feet different position on a 30' screen. However, you can use different
sample rates as long as you are consistent - I was surprised at how low a
sample rate is acceptable for some material. At Siggraph a few years ago I was
at a lecture by Dennis Muren discussing Terminator 2 where many shots were done
at less than 1k.
